Lockdown Diaries – Day Six

Today saw in a new year.

A birthday.

My mum’s.

We waved and shouted through a window. Presents dropped in a safe place.

No contact. No emotion. Only approved distances between all of us.

The boy ran around in the garden. We made eye contact.

It started to snow.

It made her smile. That’s all we could have hoped for.

All we can hope for is to see out another year.

To celebrate a birthday next year.
